"Jim Rogers, chairman of Rogers Holdings, said the increase in the price of crude oil has "years to go'' as known sources of petroleum are dwindling. "I know that unless someone discovers a lot of oil, it can go to $150, $200'' a barrel, Rogers said in a Bloomberg Television interview. "The facts are the world is running out of known oil reserves.''

Rogers said he bought airline stocks around the world today, saying bankruptcies show the sector may be nearing a bottom. "Bankruptcies are signs of bottoms, not signs of tops,'' he said. 

He also said he was shorting Exchange Traded Funds for investment banks, and specifically Citigroup Inc. and the Federal National Mortgage Association, or Fannie Mae. "I am short all the investment banks,'' Rogers said on the phone from his home in Singapore. "I know they're all in trouble, most of them have phony accounting.''

Jim Rogers is no Henry Groppe or Pickens,
but he seems to get the macro calls right.
Anyone investing in oil companies would
be blatantly aware that cheap oil is history.
